ADRN organizes workshops, generally twice a year, under the rotating initiative of our member institutions. All member institutions are encouraged to hold a national or a sub-regional workshop in order to engage local civil society organization leaders and policymakers. Some ADRN workshops and sub-group forums are held as side events at larger forums such as the World Movement for Democracy, Prague Forum 2000, and the Bali Civil Society and Democracy Forum.
ADRN publishes its research both online and offline. Our publications include thematic books, reports, and briefs. We also share videos of interviews with different experts, policymakers, researchers, and civil society activists as well as news about our workshops. We also share important democracy-related publications from our member institutions that are separate from ADRN activities.
ADRN collaborates with other networks focused on democracy research and advocacy. ADRN is a member of the Asia Democracy Network (ADN), which is a network of practitioners and activists. Established at the same time, the two entities work closely in various capacities. ADRN also cooperates with EAI’s Myanmar program, which assists in the capacity building of local civil society think tanks. ADRN engages with the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), a bipartisan funding and research organization based in Washington, D.C., as well as other international forums on democracy. ADRN seeks to widen its cooperation with both non-profit and for-profit organizations who are friends of democracy and with governments interested in promoting democracy in Asia.
